'Machete Kills'*
Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo) is back to finish the work he started with Robert Rodríguez’s Machete in 2010. Or should I say: he’s continuing the work. Machete Kills is the second of a trilogy that should end with Machete Kills Again and, according to the (fake?) trailer in Machete Kills, part of that third installment could take place … in space! Yes, the series is getting increasingly over-the-top and Chapter 2 is nowhere nearly as politically charged as the first one. But any movie that has Mel Gibson as a crazy, evil-doing billionaire, a blond Miss San Antonio double agent who kicks ass and Sofía Vergara shooting from her metal bra and crotch has my vote. —Enrique Lopetegui

'Romeo & Juliet'
Everyone loves a good Shakespeare adaptation, and this one promises a juicy cast, including Paul Giamatti, Tom Wisdom and the terrific Hailee Steinfeld. But Carlo Carlei’s interpretation has already got people guessing: in a reversal of the approach taken by Baz Luhrmann in his flashy 1996 adaptation, which moved the timeless teen romance to a stylized, modern Miami Beach, this version takes place in the traditional setting of Renaissance Italy, but doesn’t stick to the Bard of Avon’s script, using modern language and going off book in ways we can only guess. At least until October 11, that is. —Leonard Pierce

'Carrie'*
Remaking Stephen King’s Carrie (the horror classic starring Sissy Spacek as Carrie White, a teenager possessing telekinetic powers) may be unnecessary, but this one is intriguing. Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) directs Chloë Grace Moretz in the role of Carrie, and Julianne Moore as her Jesus-nutty mother. The new script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Glee, Big Love) is reportedly closer to King’s original book, and the movie has a steamy twist: “The relationship between all the girls is incredibly queer,” Peirce told Out magazine. “The way the girls are screwing their boyfriends to get them to either hurt or help Carrie—that’s a complete triangle of desire.” —EL

'The Wolf of Wall Street'*
In his fifth collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio (other notable efforts include The Departed and Gangs of New York), Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese tries his hand at the stock market game in this biographical drama adapted from the Jordan Belfort memoir of the same name. DiCaprio plays Jordan, a New York stockbroker who pulls a page out of the Gordon Gekko book on corporate scheming and benefits from years of crime and corruption in the cutthroat world of Wall Street. It’s probably a smart move to invest in this Scorsese picture, which also stars Jonah Hill as a self-indulgent broker who helps Jordan scam companies out of millions. –Kiko Martinez
